Lake George House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Credit cards and PayPal accepted! Please see 'Frequently Asked Questions' below this introduction.

This lakeside Adirondack house is ten minutes from the southern portion of beautiful Lake Champlain, 30 miles from the summertime hot spot of Lake George, New York (Six Flags!), 30 miles from Ticonderoga and the Fort, 45 minutes from the Saratoga racetrack and casino, and an hour away from high-end outlet shopping in Manchester, Vermont. Ninety minutes north takes you to caving and rafting sites. There are nearby farm stands and apple orchards (for the fall). Located on the border of New York and Vermont, it is perfect for families, a romantic getaway, a girls' week away, ski bums, and fishermen (bring your own equipment). Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet, and unlimited calling to the U.S. (all 50 states), Canada, and Puerto Rico!

TWENTY-NINE STEPS bring you down to the quiet, cozy lakefront home with a sizable yard, nice-sized deck, three bedrooms (one queen, one full, three twins) and two baths. It is situated on a quiet, well-maintained road. Fish from the rowboat, canoe, pedal boat, kayak, or from the dock. The private lake has a picturesque mountain as a backdrop. (Sorry, no motorized boats are allowed on this lake...).

Nearby towns play host to many events, such as Americade, the Adirondack (hot air) Balloon Festival, weekly fireworks and boat cruises on Lake George, hiking, waterfalls, and much more!

This warm and inviting getaway, complete with linens, household supplies, and washer and dryer, is ready to go… (See the online video tab on home page.)

There is a three-night minimum in the spring and fall. Check-out times are strictly enforced ($50 per HALF HOUR late check-out fee) to allow time for repairs and housekeeping.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER COSTS BESIDES THE RENTAL FEE AND DEPOSIT?

No, there are no hidden charges. All taxes and housekeeping fees are included. A tip for the housekeeper is suggested. The only fee that might be incurred is if renters check out late but as long as everyone is considerate and check-out time is adhered to then everything will be fine.

IS THE HOUSE PRIVATE?

Yes, the house is very private. The lake only has 8 houses on it, and we are the very last house at the end with a row of large trees between us and the house next door. Click on the Video tab on the home page to see how quiet and private this property is. (Warning: You'll fall in love with it!...)

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN STAY AT THE HOUSE?

This house has a capacity for up to a maximum of seven people, although we do have two cots if you have little ones...

WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you cancel up to two months before your arrival date, you will receive a 100% refund. If you cancel two months or less before your arrival date, the deposit will be returned and the rental fee will be forfeited.

CAN WE SWIM IN THE LAKE?

Yes! It's very clean. Bring your snorkel equipment! We have a dock, a canoe, a 'pedal' boat, a row boat, kayak, and life jackets for children (50-90 lbs.) and one life jacket for an infant, plus life jackets for adults. HOWEVER, please note that if the weather is extremely hot, algae will grow near our dock! We have a rake that can be used if this happens. It has only happened once, in the summer of 2013.

HOW CLOSE IS THE WATER?

It is down the hill, which is good if you have small children because they can't wander right out the door and into the water. (Please note: the deck has locking gates to help keep smaller children safe. For example, a child in a walker.)

HOW DEEP IS THE WATER?

The water is 95' deep at its deepest. The water drops off at our property line but there is a small spot at the other end of the lake for wading if you have small children.

CAN WE FISH IN THE LAKE?

You may bring your own equipment and fish in the lake!

IS THERE A TELEPHONE?

Yes, there are five telephones in the house (one in each bedroom, one in the living room, and one in the kitchen) with UNLIMITED FREE CALLING WITHIN THE DOMESTIC U.S.

IS THERE INTERNET AT THE HOUSE?

There is Internet for laptops to hook up to as well as Wi-Fi.

IS THERE A TV?

While there is a 26' flat screen TV for DVD viewing ONLY, there is NO cable or TV service per se. Get back to the basics and unwind . . . playing darts, poker, board games, having drinks with friends, listening to music, canoeing, fishing, and roasting marshmallows around a crackling fire underneath a starry sky.

IS THERE A DISHWASHER, WASHER, DRYER?

There is a washer and a dryer on the main floor. There is no dishwasher.

HOW CLOSE ARE GROCERY STORES AND RESTAURANTS?

The closest town is about five miles away; there are several little towns in both New York and in around-the-corner Vermont. The house is in-between Granville, NY and Whitehall, NY.

HOW FAR IS IT FROM NEW YORK CITY?

It is a little over four hours by car, depending on the traffic, of course.

CAN WE VISIT MANHATTAN FROM HERE?

You can take the train from Whitehall (five miles from the house) directly to Penn (Pennsylvania) Station in Manhattan. Because of the train schedule, AN OVERNIGHT STAY IN MANHATTAN WOULD BE REQUIRED. Please check the Amtrak train schedule for times.

CAN WE BRING OUR PET?

I am sorry but we DO NOT allow pets because of child allergies. Please be considerate and don't ask us to make exceptions because we will not.

WHAT IF I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?

Call or email Diane at AdirondackRental at yahoo or 631.728.3463. Messages will be answered as quickly as possible.

I was a magazine editor in NYC...what led to buying this house...I had to cover two stories: one was the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, VT. Then I got a story covering the Six Flags Great Adventure and Indoor Water Park in Lake George, NY. I fell in love with the entire Vermont/New York Adirondack area and started looking for a small vacation house. We found this place, which, at the time, was very run-down (no pipes, broken windows, etc.), but we saw the potential, bought it, and remodeled it. We love it here. It is located on the border of Vermont and New York.

Diane purchased this house in 2008

It is a peaceful, beautiful, and private location on the lake, and the closeness to Lake George is appealing with the tourist attractions and Six Flags, and is only 35 miles from Okemo and Killington for wintertime skiing.

Peace and quiet, plus a beautiful view. We are the last house on the lake so it is very private.

We all had a very good time.

  • 5 of 5
Just got back with my brother. We had a great week despite a disabled car for 3 days, thanks to the help of Diane and crew with logistics.

It was quickly obvious once inside that the owners care about guests being comfortable and having a great time. Many little things that altogether make a difference. The view is great.

Owner's Response: Between a wicked storm the day before and then your car breaking down on your way to start your vacation, I am surprised that you were able to even salvage your week, but you did! We have a great team, as you can see, with Carl, his wife, and with Cara-Lee, our housekeeper. Everyone pitches in to make sure we make the rental the best experience it can be. Thank you and come again...next time get something called Triple A! ha ; )

Charming waterfront fall getaway with spectualer foliage

  • 5 of 5
We love this quiet relaxing and charming little stay on Melvin Pond. It was actually our second time visiting the pond and our first stay at Diane's lovely abode. This house is wonderful for a detach yourself from it all and just enjoy the simplicity of upstate life for a week or weekend. The house was immaculate and everything is exactly as the owners promises it to be. Well cared for, loved and updated to accommodate almost every need. Renting here is a breeze and the owners make you feel truly welcome. I would highly recommend this rental for any couple, or small family, or small gathering. We love both its location and its proximity to major towns like Poultney and Lake George and the fact that it truly gets you away from it all in a most private retreat.

relaxing and timeless

  • 4 of 5
Lovely time on this quaint pond. The view is terrific, swing is great fun and early evening cocktails on the paddle boat will be remembered with a big smile! We all took advantage of the boats to explore the pond and do some fishing. I started a watercolor from the shore, but will have to finish it here-from photos I took. We hiked to the summit of Black Mountain to view Lake George. I recommend returning the same path unless you want to walk a 4 hour trek back--the long way. It is a beautiful walk and remember to bring water, energy bars and bug spray. There is a wonderful Japanese Garden north in Vermont. Thanks for the wonderful experience!

Adirondack charm

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this place for a week, 3 families.
The house is perfectly located with its own dock and 3 private boats to choose from. There was a fishing equipment and everything you could imagine you will need to have fun with family and friends:
Campfire spot, swings, areas around the house to rest and relax.
The pond the definitely the highlight ! We spent most of the day on that pond. The view is amazing - you are surrounded by nature.
The owner of the house is such a great person - she is very helpful and does everything she can to make sure we will have a great time. Will definitely come again.

Second stay in this wonderful peaceful, serene quiet little "paradise"

Second stay in this wonderful peaceful, serene quiet little "paradise"
  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay here and we enjoyed it and was even more appreciative the second time around.
We celebrated my sister's birthday at Lake George. Went back a couple of times to visit Carole at Carole Antiques, Lunch at the tea house. We took advantage of the wonderful fishing every day and the beautiful sunsets. We visited the Fort and went to an original 50's restaurant there downtown enjoying the nostolgic display 1950 items and root beer float. We had breakfast at the sugar house. I can't say enough wonderful things about the owners who are generous and kind and truly vested in making sure that our stay was memorable and that we had what we needed. Everything was still impeccable and spotless. My boyfriend came from Canada and drove over 6 hours and said it would be worth driving 12 hours. My son loves this place as I do! Thank you Diane and Dominic for everything. It is refreshing to know that there still wonderful and honest trustworthy people! I would highly recommend staying here and looking forward to coming back

Amazing Location and Experience!!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I, along with another couple, stayed at this location for a long weekend and it was truly an amazing experience. The house has literally everything you could ever need (other than your own clothing)! Every drawer, light switch and appliance has some sort of direction given for how to use the item and Diane has put so much thought into making your experience the best it can be! We decided to take a drive and find things to do, without planning, and had a wonderful time! We came across a large gorgeous house on the hill, Skene Manor, and took a tour. They have a very affordable lunch and a very fun guided tour of the place! We also found a random apple orchard that offered apple wine tastings (yum!) and had the best apple cider donut I have ever tasted in my life haha! The house itself was the perfect setting for a relaxing and romantic weekend. We took the rowboat out in the gorgeous fall colors and caught fish during the day. We relaxed by the fire and drank some wine at night. The house is simply amazing and Diane was so responsive and supportive from our very first inquiry email! I highly recommend this location for any traveler!!! Enjoy your stay! I know I will again in the future :)
